Outdoor Retailer: Stanley 100th Anniversary Bottle
Each summer the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, becomes the world’s largest outdoor sports industry showcase and gathering. With over 25,000 exhibitors and attendees, OR (as it’s known in the industry) is THE place to find the hot products, browse latest industry trends and see great coming-soon gear from over 1,000 outdoor lifestyle and recreational brands. The trick for a Gift Guru is to find the fun, unique, helpful and ultimately gift-able products from the thousands on hand. With what seems like acres of cool outdoor products, it’s gotta be special to catch my eye. Here’s one that would make a great gift!
THE GIFT: The Stanley 100 Year Anniversary Vacuum Bottle w/ Limited Edition Shoulder Sling (available now $175)
THE SCOOP: The iconic Stanley vacuum bottle turns 100 years old this year. To honor this classic piece, Stanley has collaborated with Filson to create a limited bottle that’s sure to be handed down through the generations.
When two heritage brands like Stanley and Filson get together you know the result will be special. This timeless 1.0L bottle vacuum seals to keep what’s inside hot or cold for 24 hours. The double-walled stainless construction defines the word rugged. The Filson touches can be seen in rustic yet durable, tin cloth and bridle leather shoulder sling. The red flannel lined case just adds to its Americana allure.
I love the gift as it’s a very cool, functional piece of gear that can be used today, but it’s more than that. Think of the bottle as a family heirloom that will be passed down from fathers to sons for years to come.
